It was just fine !
friendly and helpful staff . Close to Taksim by walking distance . There was a Shawerma place right 100 steps up street which had a very tasty and cheap food.
Hotel didn't give a five star impression , and it was located in a very low class area. Hotel was surrounded by a lot of mechanic shops which didn't look much good.
The rooms were clean and spacious, the front desk was accommodating and helpful. Concierge understood exactly what we wanted/needed and recommended accordingly.
The area is run down and awful! It's halfway up a hill, there is nothing within comfortable walking distance. It is in the middle between Taksim and Nisantasi, which are both great, but that middle area in itself is terrible. It's neither a business, residential, shopping or tourist area.. Oh and getting a Taxi to agree to take us to Harbiye every time we were out and wanted to head back was a nightmare. They hate going there because of the traffic. We visited the spa, our massage was wall to wall with the gym, actually you had to walk in and out of the therapy room THROUGH the gym. 1. it was noisy, 2, it was COLD! especially after being wet from the Turkish bath, 3, the music in the therapy room had to be really really loud to cover up the gym music.
